Hard to believe Luiz is only 23, not my favourite player but would not dream of selling.

Iím of the view Bentancur is a smokescreen for something else. But I know nothing just a feeling in me waters.

Hope it's not gout

Iím currently medically signed off from flying for a few weeks with Gallstones. I would sincerely hope that itís not those too. I wouldnít recommend them to my worst enemy
Having done the gallstones / pancreatitis thing I would very much concur Chris - get well soon

I am ambivalent about keeping/selling Luiz. I still think we have not seen th best of him because our midfield has not been balanced. But if you said we were adding B Kamara and R Betancur and selling Luiz - I would not be too dissapointed.

What does D Luiz offer that our other midfielders currently don't? He isn't a DM, box to box or playmaker. I woudl argue McGinn is much more consistent and still getting better....

You obviously missed McGinn's effort at Everton. Shocking. I'm struggling to remember his last 8 or 9/10 performance for us. Maybe that Wolves defeat?

He needs to move out of midfield and fight with likes of Coutinho, Buendia and Bailey for a spot further up the pitch. Not working at all for him or us in a 3. If we got that top holding midfielder in maybe we could switch to a 4231.

Sanson and Traore need to impress soon I think or else will be moved on.

bb is always harsh with his assessments (execept for his romance with Tuanzebe) but McGinn really was very poor against Everton. I also don't think McGinn is playing at his best often enough to be a guaranteed starter. Then again, both Gerrard and Smith, sees it differently so he has something I don't fully appreciate.

JM may not be playing well but his aggression helped us win at Everton.

Iím not convinced by our midfield as a whole so I expect there to be changes over the next couple of windows and it wonít be Ramsey.

McGinn often has a few dips in form over a course of the season. When heís on it heís superb when heís not heís not useless just a little frustrating with the ball. Heís still young and Gerrard may improve this as will players keeping him on his toes.

yes, that thought had crossed my mind (particularly after the way the Chambers deal was done).

I don't think he (Bentancur) wants to sign for us - as we cannot offer him Champions league football

With regards to Luiz, his girlfriend WOW!!
